What our clients say.
DLX Shelters are an American designer and manufacturer of emergency shelter systems. With 25 years’ experience in emergency shelter design, their shelters are used widely by U.S. federal and civil protection agencies, search and rescue teams and the US military.
The shelters are designed to be lightweight, robust and rapidly assembled. They are manufactured using military grade vinyl fabric that exhibits extremely high resistance to hydrostatic pressure (waterproofing), mold resistance, flame resistance and fire retardation. They can withstand high winds and while not relevant in the UK, considerable strength to resist settled snow build up.
UK-Med first encountered the DLX system during a UK Emergency Medical Team (UKEMT) exercise in July 2017 where UKISAR field tested a loaned DLX ASAP-12 and ASAP-18 shelter. Sufficiently impressed by the simplicity of the design, the robust nature of the product, ease of set-up and practical system that allows dual purposes for the shelters transport system UK-Med became the first organisation in the UK to own and deploy the DLX system.
The shelters are designed to be lightweight, robust and rapidly assembled.
In early 2018 UK-Med procured 4 x DLX ASAP-18 shelters and 1 X-HUB with a range of accessories including insulation, ground sheets and vestibule connectors. The HUB allows the shelters to be configured contiguously in several layouts or set up as a standalone shelter. The HUB was still a prototype when we received it, and UK-Med have supported its development.
Since 2018, the shelters have been used extensively by UK-Med for simulation and training purposes, being erected and left out in a variety of settings and conditions with no adverse effects. The shelters are easy to clean and dry, and while a tight fit into their transport cases, they are easily moved and transported. Where required UK-Med have received prompt, excellent service and support from the DLX team.
In 2019, the UKEMT underwent a complete infrastructure review, including the types of shelter used. Prompted by recommendations by UK-Med, the previously used Alaska Shelter and Losberger inflatable shelters have been replaced by DLX ASAP® and X-Series X-24, X-32 and X-40. DLX shelters now form the backbone of the UKEMT build.
Both the Alaska and Losberger shelter systems are robust quality systems, however compared to the DLX X-Series and ASAP® shelters they are heavy and cumbersome systems, with multiple components and difficult to manage in the field by small teams. DLX systems do not require additional infrastructure for their build or maintenance in the field. The Losberger inflatable system particularly requires additional infrastructure, a pump, power source (fuel) and regular reinflation if used for protracted periods or in fluctuating climates. No shelter is invulnerable to material damage; however, the nature of an inflated system renders them particularly prone to failure through material damage. They are resource and labour heavy. Once the DLX is up, it’s up; rapidly built by small teams without complex instruction or training, and minimal ongoing maintenance.
For rapid deployment to sudden onset disaster the DLX systems offers the ideal simple, compact and durable shelter solution, well suited for EMT response. UK-Med have been very pleased with our shelter purchase and are able to submit a positive reference with no hesitation.
